JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa diversifies its amenities as it welcomes the new Tidal Cove Waterpark. Adding five acres of pool area, the new recreation space is home to the nation’s first FlowRider Triple surf simulator, a 60-foot tower with seven water slides and a 4,000-square-foot play structure. Tidal Cove is the most recent addition to the resort’s multi-million dollar renovation and expansion.

Twenty-five private cabanas, two private event lawns with 15,000 square feet and 12,000 square feet, and two new dining venues accompany the opening of Tidal Cove. Surf House Bar & Grill offers an elegant dining experience in its two-story, open-air space that accommodates 142 guests. The second restaurant, Freestyle, is Tidal Cove’s quick service dining facility striving to meet the needs of every guest.

“Throughout our fifty-year history, we have endeavored to serve our guests and members with exceptional hospitality, and Tidal Cove is the next chapter in our story to continue enhancing the family experience. Tidal Cove will be a unique offering in the greater South Florida area and an exciting way for groups and families alike to enjoy the sunshine in a fun, upscale outdoor setting,” says Jeff Soffer, chairman and CEO of Fontainebleau Development.

“We are proud to have such a well-rounded and highly-accredited staff at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry to support our newest luxury waterpark venture,” says Jeff Klein, vice president and managing director of Turnberry.

Tidal Cove welcomes hotel guests and Turnberry Isle Country Club members. Resort day memberships are also available to the public. 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.

 

Even during a worldwide pandemic, the hospitality industry is working to make people feel at ease. Though many hotels can only open their doors to health care workers and first responders, they’re reaching out to their local communities with bright messages in clever, socially-distanced ways. Through the heart-shaped lighting of windows at night, hotels are serving as beacons of hope in cities across the country.
